[sic], the latest endeavor of soft noise/dark ambient blowhard, Controlled
Dissonance, is an expression of minimalistic composition. Stripping down
to the bare bones, Controlled Dissonance culled the sounds for this
release exclusively from field recordings and found material on
microcassette. These recordings were manipulated with a transcription
device, a handful of effects pedals and a small arsenal of digital
effects. The resulting tracks both belie the humble origin of their
source recordings, and elevate even the commonplace sounds of the world
around us to new realms of ambience.

This is a work dedicated to ambient noise; what we know as background is the center of interest here. I haven't heard all of it, but I can't yet identify any intelligible sound, which makes it all the more intriguing.
The 'branding' presented here made me skeptical, but I really do like the product.
